  • The palazzo ducale is one of the largest Italian architectural complexes and articulate. Is one of the main Italian historical buildings. The first Sunday of the month, taking advantage of the fact that admission is free we did visit the Palace to our children.

  • Salt, stunning ceilings salons, a succession of wonderful things. The occasion of the first Sunday of the month without pay is a wonderful opportunity, several people but you visit all the museum complex without any problems.

  • Palazzo ducale in Mantova is a wonderful surprise of ceilings salons each with a different characteristic. Works and beautiful tapestries and the famous camera degli sposi. Absolutely worth visiting with a guide who will tell the story of the Gonzaga.
